angeles because all of our problems in california. we are hanging tough. one thing i can say about california, we have a democratic legislature, so jerry brown is able to do some things out here. >> bill: jerry brown got that initiative passed. the voters not only passed the initiative which enables jerry brown to bring the economy back and with a balanced program out there as well but, also, through, as you pointed out howard, cleaned house, threw the republicans out and put a veto-proof democratic majority in each house of the california legislature which is really great. absolutely, howard i think, again, the american people -- we have already, we are behind the president. he senses that. i think, you know, peter, it felt to me like sometimes in the first term, the president was reluctant, a little hesitant to use all of the power that he's got. >> i agree.
